E-book workshop at Rockland library Oct. 29
Rockland — Interested in learning how to check out library e-books on a new e-book reader or tablet? Head to Rockland Public Library Tuesday, Oct. 29, at 2:30 p.m. for a demonstration of the statewide digital library.
The Maine InfoNet Download Library is the free e-book and e-audiobook lending library for Maine library card holders. Rockland Public Library cardholders currently borrow about 200 e-books per month from the download library. Titles can be downloaded to an e-book reader, tablet computer, or a desktop/laptop computer. At the end of the loan period, the e-book is automatically deleted from the device.
In this workshop, participants will practice searching for and downloading e-books. Participants are encouraged to bring their own device, and configure it to the library’s wireless before the event. Laptops will also be available to use. As time allows, instruction will be provided for how to find other sources of free e-books on the Internet.
Cardholders are also able to check out iPads and e-book readers, pre-loaded with e-books, for two weeks just like a library book. Rockland Public Library is located at 80 Union St. in Rockland. Please call the library at 594-0310 for further information.
